Evening Reflection 

This guidance kind of smacked me around all day.

I had a meeting to hammer out a burgeoning idea and found I was resisting. It was not so much the ideas but the work itself. I was already working hard on several projects and my whole being was resisting adding more work to my plate. However, I was committed and wanted to move forward. That is when I realized I just desired for the work to flow; to not be something that felt as if I was swimming upstream in order to progress. After that realization, I told myself to relax. It was then I felt a change. I connected to my passion, the gifts and talents that were needed, and I was able to work with excellence as the work flowed. I was also able to enjoy the gifts and talents of those I was working with.

Later, a family member showed up and needed to talk. I was still smack in the middle of my work. I resisted giving up my time, especially since I didn’t know how much of my listening ear would be needed. But I remembered the guidance to keep my spirit open. I did pray and ask for wisdom even while looking at said loved one. I felt God’s grace within me. I was able to listen, respond and share a bit of wisdom, which I asked God for in the moment. I was able to be encouraging and spoke with the love the guidance had encouraged.

Later… I received a text thanking me for taking the time to listen, offer wisdom and encouragement. It ended with, “I love you!”

I tell you… I have been greatly helped by daily guidance books in my life. I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service for others in sharing what is being given me daily.
